“Peaceful, charming riad in a Perfect location in Marrakesh”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2009

I stayed in this Riad for 3 nights with my boyfriend and I can only say good things about it!
an amazing stylish, traditional with a touch of modern desig riad in a perfect location of the Medina (just 10 minutes walk away from caothic Jma el Fnaa), where to find peace and a warm welcome after a long day in Marrakesh.
The staff is incredibly warm, knowledgeable and friendly that we felt at home from the time we set our foot in the riad.
Breakfasts are a definite highlight, either in the patio or in the living room at the groundfloor or in the wonderful roof terrace with a lovely view on the whole of the Medina and Atlas mountains. it made my boyfriend and i forget about the city hustle and enjoy a relaxing time.
the riad is perfect for both couples and small group of friends as the patio, roof terrace and common space are ideal for a chat, sunbathing and enjoying delicious moroccan mint tea which is served to every customer at every time of the day.
I will definitely go back to the riad on my next trip to Marrakesh and I have already reccomended it to all of my friends.
One more thing: the rooms are amazing and they are exactly as they look in the pictures, which is quite a remarkable thing! we had the chance to stay in three different rooms and i would reccomend this experience as every room is unique and decorated with great style and provide you with a different feel of the riad-experience.
I think it is the best choice if you want to have a quiet night (a lot of riad are in the middle of the medina where is very noisy) and ideal if you want to travel by coach (only 5 minutes away from the coach station). there is also a little alley with a souk next door so you can buy your spices and last minutes souvenirs withouth having to get into the chaos of the medina once again ! I would reccomend having dinner there as the food is prepared by staff, purely moroccan and it is the closest experience you can get to having dinner with a moroccan family. The food we had was delicious and the price is really good!

Riad Mur Akush provided the perfect retreat from the heat and noise of the day outside. To sit at sunset on the roof terrace and watch the swallows circle above our heads with the atlas mountains in view ahead of us was a very repeatable experience. Breakfast is substantial, in fact the best choice we were offered in Morocco. The bed was a little hard...but I found this where ever I stayed and think it must just be a Moroccan thing, but rooms were clean and the shower was good.

Riad Mur Akush is perfect for everybody who wants to avoid the big unpersonal hotel chains in the new city of Marrakech. It is a beautiful place on a perfect location in the Medina. I can fully confirm the other reviews when they mention the warm and helpful attitude of the staff. When you ask, they will help you were ever they can with all your plans and wishes. You realy feel at home and secure in Riad Mar Akush. Good value for money. Good clean and comfortable rooms. Despite my plans, I booked two extra nights because I liked it so much. Complete breakfast and a great authentic Moroccan dinner when you ask Zora to prepare it for you. You can buy your own wine in the supermarket and they are happy to keep in in the frige and serve it to you when you like without any costs. To make it short, it is a perfect riad for everybody who would like a personal treatment in an wonderful authentic place on a great location !

We loved our stay at the Mur Akush - friendly, helpul staff who went out of their way to may our time in Marrakesh easy going and enjoyable.
We had arranged transport from the airport through the riad when booking our room, and found that made our first visit to Morocco stressfree and easy going. On arrival Hassan and Mohommed welcomed us warmly with our first taste of mint tea and the most delicious sweet snacks.
Breakfast were more like a banquet and fueled us up for the day. Nothing was too much for the our hosts and we have fond memories of our stay

We could not fault our stay at Riad Mur Akush at all. Maria was very quick to respond to my initial email, Mohammed and Hassan were the perfect hosts. We were upgraded to a bigger room, both of them were beautifully decorated with extremely comfortable beds. Our trip to the Atlas Mountains was arranged thru the Riad and was a brilliant day out. Breakfast on the roof terrace was the best part of the day for me. The Riad is perfectly situated, a short walk to many places of interest. We would definately return.

This was the only place we stayed that recognised it was our honeymoon and got out the red carpet for us so we'll always be grateful for that little something extra that the staff of the Riad were happy to do.
The location is perfect, just outside the busy lanes to be quiet and peaceful but close enough for it to be a matter of minutes walking to the sites and sounds.
The staff couldn't do enough for us showing us around, booking tables for us and arranging a massage in the Riad itself.
If and when we go back we'd book into here again without doubt.

We started our 2 week trip in Morooco with 3 nights in the Mur Akush in Marrakech. Tea and cakes on the terrace was a perfect welcome to the hotle. We have 2 children and were given the suite with the sitting room converted for the children to sleep in. It was beautiful and perfect. The rooms are finished to a high standard and have a suitably Moroccan feel to them, fresh flowers and cacti were everywhere, the central courtyard is a haven from the hectic medina and the roof terrace is a perfect suntrap. The staff Hussan, Mohammed and Zora, were terribly helpful and were ready to assist with organsing hire cars, travel ideas for the rest of our time in Morooco etc, including plenty of things which did not give them any income. It would not be suitable for little children but for ours (10 and 8) it was great. Go there!!!!!
